    Re: Driver for Intel Wireless 6200 LAN card

    @ Ufulum & janderpola, Hi guys, I'm pleased to hear you are having success with the Dell Studio 15 & Ubuntu. I'm about to buy one as they are on offer, i-5 processor, 512MB ATI Mobility RADEON HD 4570 Graphics Card and more... very good price for the specs, I'll be adding the Intel wireless card myself. What do you think of it, are you happy? I will be installing a Linux distro on it in the same hour it arrives

    Are the function keys working? Sound? Anything playing up apart from what you originally posted? would you be so kind as to post the results of lspci + lshw o PM them to me?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Driver for Intel Wireless 6200 LAN card

    As I said in the post before, I also got the driver working in the unstable version. Problem is that it is way to unstable. Need a more stable version before I can run 10.04.

    Except from the wireless card, things seemed to work quite well in 9.10. Though, I'd rather not run it with a cable going through my apartment. Either I have to find some driver for the card, or I have to wait until 10.04 becomes more stable.

    The pc itself is quite good. I chose the 1080p screen which is wonderful.

    Re: Driver for Intel Wireless 6200 LAN card

    I have a Dell Studio 1458 (14") with Intel WiFi Link 6200. This worked for me.

    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-karmic-generic
    Then reboot.

    The information came from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8840137

    Re: Driver for Intel Wireless 6200 LAN card

    Thanks! Then wireless is working with kernel 2.6.31.

    I also got it working by upgrading the kernel. Just follow the guide here:

    Great stuff, my new Studio 15 arrived today, I quickly followed this post and now I have sound and wireless working, well found guys! In a nutshell, it's a simple upgrade of the kernel to 2.6.32. I'll post the instructions here in case anyone else needs them, these instructions point to the 64-bit kernel too:

    Install the files in the following order:
    1) linux-headers-2.6.32-020632_2.6.32-020632_all.deb

    2) for I386: linux-headers-2.6.32-020632-generic_2.6.32-020632_i386.deb
    or if AMD64: linux-headers-2.6.32-020632-generic_2.6.32-020632_amd64.deb

    3) for I386: linux-image-2.6.32-020632-generic_2.6.32-020632_i386.deb
    or for AMD64: linux-image-2.6.32-020632-generic_2.6.32-020632_amd64.deb

    Finally, in the terminal run:
    # sudo update-grub

    Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu
    For those who want to do their “own” compiles, the source is available here.

    The original tute was by: Ramon Van Belzen

    With much thanks to the guys who started this thread and sussed out the issues, perhaps you can mark this as solved now?

    *** One final note, on my Studio 15 the fan was constantly running, I discovered that installing the proprietary drivers from ATI fixed this. My card is a Radeon Mobility HD 4 series, I got the driver here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...2&lang=English

    Hope this helps someone else, so far everything else is working pretty well, what I have tried at least...

    Ah, seems the link I posted is kind of defective. Thanks for posting the content so people can find it more easily.

    It seems by the way that the fan is running most of the time, even when the cpu is quite cold. That and the multimedia keys causing an everlasting loop are the main problems I have with Ubuntu now.

    Yeah, I've fixed my fan issue with the proprietary ATI graphics driver, I added that to the end of my last post, but sounds like you missed it. The multimedia keys are as you say, loopy. I haven't even bothered looking in to that problem yet, decided I can wait until the end of next month for 10.04 to be released.

    Here are a couple of useful links for anyone else who buys a Dell 1558:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1401746

    The following link is to fix the volume keys, however, it didn't work for me so I can't verify it:

    I've been searching around, but I haven't found any drivers for it. Does anyone know if there is a driver that will work with this card?

    When I type iwconfig it recognizes that there is a wireless card, but it doesn't find my access point or any of my neighbours access points.

    I can post you the output of iwconfig, lspci and others if you like, will just have to find a network cable for my Dell Studio 15.
    I have the same problem! Dell studio 1558. Intel centrino advanced wireless-N w/WiMax 2x2 mini card.
    When in Linux ubuntu, my wireless is "disabled".
    I also get the responce in the terminal that my wireless card is Disabled! On top of that, my headphones slot doesn't produce any sound. I can only hear sound from my speakers.
